Title: Summer Sounds—Jason Simon’s One-Minute Film Festival
Location: Pritzker Garden, The Art Institute of Chicago, 111 South Michigan Avenue
Description: Jason Simon, the partner of Sound & Vision artist Moyra Davey (Canadian, born 1958), is a filmmaker who for eight years running has hosted an annual festival. Anyone may submit their film for Simon’s festivals as long as it follows one simple rule: the can be no longer than 60 seconds. Simon serves as the event’s organizer and VJ, screening the films in a decidedly party atmosphere. Staged until now in a barn in Narrowsburg, New York, this will be the first traveling presentation of the festival. The festival will end in 2012 after ten years, at which point MassMoCA will launch a traveling exhibition of the project’s “greatest hits.”
Members $8, nonmembers $10. Tickets available the night of the event at the Pritzker Garden gate on Columbus Drive. Cash only. Free for guests submitting a film entry.
